Exercise at Young Women's Hebrew Association of New York, 1914

Reformers believed that women needed physical health to fulfill domestic roles and offset the negative influence of unsanitary urban conditions. Physical exercise was the answer, as demonstrated by this 1914 photograph of an exercise class at the Young Women's Hebrew Association in New York City.

Institution: 92nd Street Y, New York
